Re: Why is the United States so much better at basketball than the rest of the world?
Basketball is an unpopular sport in most European countries. Even in those with the best basketball leagues.
Many European children dream with playing football, tennis, winter sports, motorsport, etc. Not with basketball. In proportion to the number of players USA is no that dominant.
In fact Europe provides most of the good white players, and some of the best players in the league are europeans.
